Pure Blue Japan jeans, Model 005, 14 oz., indigo, size 33. Bought raw, washed once hung dry (so no tags), worn approx. 1 hour. Outstanding quality. Measurements: 34" waist, 10.125" front rise, 15" back rise, 12" thigh, 8.5" leg opening, 36" inseam. For more information,...
I think all of these heavier winter trousers look better with cuffs.
MTO trousers look very good. I was also wondering about the mist moleskin. This seems like one of those shades that might be difficult to see online. How green is it? It looks like a kind of pale olive.
Moleskin is just what I need. Lets hope it happens.
Are there going to be more MTO trousers for this season? I know that the suits/SCs are going up soon, but I can't recall what the word was on trousers.
This might be unnecessary to say, but I think the Heschung chukkas deserve some attention. I think many of us were slow to move on the grey ones stocked for S/S, but those of us who eventually picked them up were glad we did so. I love mine.
It sounds as if the GRPs are somewhat slim. I am a 40R, not quite as tall as these other gents but with somewhat broad shoulders/ long arms. Is a L the best choice for me? I don't think I would want it to be too fitted.
F/W Trousers are starting to appear on the site. They look good so far, but can you tell us more about the weight of the tweeds, solid and Donegal? This looks like fair heavy, serious fabric. Not that there is not a place for that; I just want to know what to expect. Of the current choices my eye is drawn to the camel solid tweed and the cream cords. Its is good to see more lighter coloured trousers.
Thanks for the replies. This sounds like pretty serious fabric. I might want a lighter weight, if in fact one was available.GC: if you have any pictures of how this Molloy Donegal made up I would love to see them.
Interesting discussion on tweed. I wondered if anyone in this thread has tried one of Molloy's Donegal tweeds, which apparently have the distinction of actually being made in Donegal. I don't know much about them, but them seem to be on the heavier side. The one below is about 18 oz. I just saw the swatches posted by Luxire. They are offering these fabrics for trousers, although they seem better suited to sport coats. Anyhow, here is one example:
